Festival of Trees

Be a part of our annual Festival of Christmas Trees!

This exciting project involves organisations, community groups and individuals coming together in the decoration of a one-off Christmas tree.

For the first time in the project’s year history, the dazzling display can be found online to enable bidding to continue on the unique Christmas trees.
